Today we feature a palatial shingle-style foreclosure on the island of Alameda. When the home was built it likely enjoyed a view of the bay from its high gable windows, but a massive bay fill operation in the middle of the last century forever altered the face of Alameda and cut off many of the old bay front mansions from their pricey vistas.
This particular home was built on a massive scale. With seven bedrooms and six bathrooms in over 5000 SF it is a substantial structure with room for all of one’s friends and extended family. The home’s interior embellishments are equal to its great scale as well with enormous quantities of woodwork and plenty of intricate decoration. More research would need to be done, but there is also substantial indication that the home was designed by one of the Bay Area’s premier First Bay architects – a detail that was not mentioned in the listing. This home would therefore be a perfect candidate for a Home Provenance Inspection.
